Dr. Loosen's Dr. L. Riesling is a captivating introduction to the world of German Riesling. This delightful white wine hails from the Mosel Valley, renowned for its steep slate slopes and refreshing, mineral-driven Rieslings.

Aromatic Allure

On the nose, Dr. L. Riesling unfolds a bouquet of inviting aromas. Ripe orchard fruits like peaches and apricots take centre stage, mingling with hints of citrus zest for a burst of freshness. Delicate floral notes, reminiscent of honeysuckle, add a touch of elegance, while subtle minerality hints at the wine's slatey origins. The overall impression is one of vibrancy and purity, whetting the appetite for the first sip.

A Dance on the Palate

The palate of Dr. L. Riesling is a lively dance between sweetness and acidity. The characteristic Riesling acidity cuts through the juicy fruit flavours, ensuring a refreshing and balanced experience. The sweetness level leans towards off-dry, offering a touch of approachability without compromising the wine's crispness. Hints of minerality echo from the nose, adding further complexity and structure. The finish is clean and lingers pleasantly, leaving you wanting more.

For a taste of Germany: Pair Dr. L. Riesling with a traditional dish like Sauerbraten (marinated roast beef) or Schweinebraten (roast pork) with creamy potato dumplings. The wine's acidity cuts through the richness of the pork, while the sweetness complements the tangy sauerkraut.
